time. for more, let's bring in two experts on the region. with us one of the world's most distinguished war correspond epts, janine digiovanni. joining us from paris and the "new york times" columnist nick christoff. good afternoon to both of you. nick, a 42-year dictatorship broad to a bloody end. were you surprised at how gadhafi met his fate? >> well, it looked for a while as he might indeed be in sirte and seen that it was going to fall at some point. so in that sense it seemed more a matter of time, but it certainly is -- nobody wants to see his grave or anybody's grave, but it's a relief to everybody who has watched everything unfold. >> you watched the visit to libya and you describe a country haunted by the ghosts of gadhafi's reign of terror. is the widespread celebration a mark of how he terrorized his people? >> reporter: martin, i think we have to remember for 40 years, people were deeply traumatized by gadhafi. they lived in a world of silence and fear and a world where they cooperate speak and had no vote. they were terrified of being taken away and tortured and killed and
iraqi freedom has been at considerable cost to the nation. over 4,400 u.s. military kill and 32,000 wounded, including over 1,000 amputees, all at a cost of american taxpayers of $712 billion. in his remarks the president made it clear he intends to end involvement in afghanistan in the not too distant future. >> the united states is moving forward from a position of strength. the war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. the transition in afghanistan is moving forward and our troops are finally coming home. >> then this pronouncement that military families have been waiting for for almost a decade. >> here at home, the coming months will be another season of homecomings. across america, our service men and women will be reunited with families. today i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> as the president pulls down the curtain on one of the longest and most divicive conflicts in u.s. history, what is the reaction from congress? karl levin is the chairman of the senate arms services committee and joins us from capitol hill.
to do violent things for money. that person turned out to be an under cover u.s. law enforcement agent from the drug enforcement administration and from that point on, this was a sting operation and everything that happened was monitored by law enforcement. two sets of wiring money to a bank account totalling $100,000 and discussing how they might do it and setting a bomb off in a restaurant in washington. all those things were done as the u.s. law enforcement watched interactions with the under cover source. what the two from iran were willing to do was astonishing because they were willing to blow up as many as it took to assassinate the ambassador. >> this is remarkable and what's the thinking behind deploying a mexican drug cartel ? >> simply this was apparently the idea. he said that or at least in discussion with the iranians in iran that they had the idea if you are looking for somebody who will commit crimes that were mercenaries that would do something like this violent for money and the place to go would be members of a drug cartel . one interesting point that is not immediat
to be president of the united states. it's useful to just talk about what this means within the republican party when its us about today's party and where the heart of the party is less than a horse race dimensions of this. >> what are herman cain is doing is taking a lot of steam out of rick perry's sagging candidacy. he is blocking the anti-romney vote from coalescing behind anyone with a shot. >> thank you very much for joining us. >> thank, ;&2)qmartin. >> the economy looks to be growing. will congress rain on the parade? stay with us. ♪ [ dr. ling ] i need to get the results from the m.r.i. see if the blood work is ready. review ms. cooper's history. and i want to see katie before she goes home. [ male announcer ] with integrated healthcare solutions from dell, every patient file is where dr. ling needs it. now she can spend more time with patients and less time on paperwork. ♪ dell. the power to do more. >>> the economic news as as positive as we have seen in sometime. both parties and congress can brag about passing a thin sliver of president obama's jobs plan. house speaker john boeh
't succeed and pull the ladder of opportunity up. >> a lot of us when we are kids and our parents say to whom much is given, much is expected. with the 1% of the country protected by who is leading the charge in washington on the hill anyway. want to say the "new york times" columnist weighed in today on the wall street protests write this in the times. not the protesters who are trying to get heard, but the extremists are olegarks who want to suppress the sources of their wealth. how much can this go on? >> i thought that was bizarre. basically he's attacking people for criticizing occupy wall street. shocking. there is a left wing movement in america and conservative politicians disagree and don't like it. when the tea party was coming out and politicians were reasonable because it was conservative. >> isn't this what's expected? the other side is pushing back. it's this push and pull like a rubber band. >> the opponents are his opponents. big deal. the occupy wall street people are generating a lot of noise and the movement is growing and the measure of a success is not poll numbers of wha
much for joining us. >> more on the president's strong words and how foreign tell us is shaping his with the. msnbc analyst and washington bureau chief. this is the director of research and the policy fellow at the brookings commute. good afternoon. i can start with you. the president said when he came in, iran was able to play countries against each other. they have isolated tehran from the world. do you agree with that statement? >> i do agree. it wasn't really president obama's preferred objective as you recall in his inaugural address. he talked about reaching to those who would unclinch his fist and negotiating with dictato dictators. he would like to think that a more open and multilateral and diplomatic america could have relations with iran and north korea and a country like that. when that didn't work, he was in a better place than to pursue the bush agenda of isolating iran because he tried and they recognized that obama try and when that was rejected and that of course when they had elections in 2009 and intensified to uncover it, that put the president in a better positi
to fold them, mr. cain. member of the congressional hispanic caucus who joins us from tucson. good afternoon, sir. >> how are you? >> i want to reassure and we are about to read from the book. in this book, he writes and i'm quoting, if they get into the mote and get over my fence which will be 20 feet high and outswim the alligators, i give them the job. is it right to assume in herman's world, being eaten by alligators is determined to be the best way to deter illegal immigration? >> i think cain and as ignorant as the comments are, it's the pandering he is doing to go render unto caesar and the sheriff and get his blessing and lay lavish praise on him, a man that is being investigated for the justice department and a rights violation in court on profiling and being investigated in the use of federal funds. not necessarily an icon of justice and law, but here they are. what's disturb disturbing about case comments is he can have his opinions and viewpoints and i might disagree regarding his politics and the fact remains in context. this nation still has the strains and the stains
on the streets of this country? >> do you stand by that comment about mobs? >> i think more important than my use of the word is the fact that there is a growing frustration out there across this country and it's warranted. too many will people are out of work. where i am most concern side we have elected leaders who are joining in an effort to blame others rather than focusing on the policies that have brought about the current situation. >> stop blaming others. stop the divisiveness, right? like you have never been obstructed or divicive yourself. the president answered that charge even as it left mr. kantor's lips at the martin luther king,jr. memorial dedication. >> those with power and privilege will often decry a call for change as divicive. they will say any challenge to the existing arrangements are unwise and destabilizing. dr. king understood that peace without justice was no peace at all. if he were alive today, he would remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of wall street without demonizing all who work there. >> as some criticize the movement for bei
and also with us is msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman. michael, if i can begin with you, there is a strong sense of disappointment in republican circles that chris christie has chosen not to run. do you share that disappointment? >> i'm excited in his leadership and think that and have always said i think he should go to be a good governor of new jersey and the field was wide open and the opportunity was great. like he said he did not think he was ready and believed him. once this is not a sense of relief and that he is doing or not doing, what the relief i feel is we can get past this and let the folks in the race continue to build the momentum they are trying to build towards the nomination. >> joe scarborough said they needed christie to run to raise their game. given that he is not running, 3 a mediocrity around the candidates? >> the voters right now, there is a lack of enthusiasm. there was not much enthusiasm for richard nixon in 1968 and he was nominated and narrowly elected. you don't have to have a love affair with the nominee to work for him. if he goes on to
to campaign full-time instead of doing what the american people sent us all here to do. >> while the president declares we're in an economic emergency but it's not time for games. mr. boehner takes time out to say the president has given up on the country. here to help us sort it out, msnbc's ed schultz, host of the ed show. >> martin, good to be with you. >> this was an aggressive and assertive president fronting up to the republicans, telling them to explain why they won't support this jobs bill. were you impressed? >> i was. i think the president, piece by piece, week after week, is laying the case out to the american people. well, what i did months ago was offer up a huge package for protests he's seen spreading across the country? >> i don't think it's hurt him. i was impressed with the president today. he didn't try to politically capitalize on it. he characterized what he thought the people were going through based on what he's seen in the coverage and went as far as to say they're frustrated but then he talked about the injustices that have taken place and the moral injustice that is h
was a one-term president. obviously, the job of any of us in the house or the senate is to try to help america succeed, and in fact, if there is going to be accountability when the president has a major bill, i think each one of us in congress should be willing to vote on us yes or no, and let voters hold us accountable. we can take a different point of view, but let's move on and say what we think and vote. mr. cantor is doubled down on the notion that if government is dysfunctional, which is not acting and it's not divided government but dysfunctional government, the disgust of what americans feel, it comes down on his electoral process. >> and some are questioning his approach. let's here what congressman frank wolf had to say on the tax plunge signed by so many republicans. >> have we really reached a point where one person's demand for ideological purity is paralyzing congress to the point where a discussion of tax reform is breaking a no tax pledge? >> are you beginning to see cracks in mr. cantor's army here, and how can you appeal to people like mr. wolf? >> thank you, mr. wolf
very much for joining us. for more on this mounting protest, we are joined by msnbc analyst and rnc chairman michael steele and dana mill bank of the "washington post." the president speaking at the inauguration of the martin luther king,jr. memorial said the nation is in an economic crisis that left millions out of work and struggling to get by. by using that rhetoric, was he trying to align himself with the occupy protesters we have seen around the world? >> i think so. i think a little bit trying to get as close as he can, not knowing what the end point is and what the overall objective is. what is the overall objective of these protests? if the profit report came out and there was a billion or a loss, how would that feed in as you open the show? the president is making a calculation and trying to get as close as he can without getting burned by the heat should this thing get hotter as the months progress. >> one network routinely referred to this as unhygienic. what are they seeking to cooperate for their own purposes? >> i don't think there is a lot of danger for the president.
because herman cain stands with us. >> absolutely. that ad courtesy of weird and weirder. to help us sort out the mysteries of herman cain at the end of a busy week, goldie taylor is with us and from washington karen finney. karen, if i can start with you. before we come to mr. cain himself, his chief of staff who smokes also has an interesting personal history. for three years and fined 15,000 for voter suppression, we reported that earlier and were one of the first to do so. there was a tax warrant for an unpaid bill and arrested twice for drunk driving. a chain smoking drunk driving operative who doesn't pay his bills. >> he would make a great chief of staff. the drunk driving obviously not good, but the thing that i find most disconcerting is that this is someone who has a record of disenfranchising voters. actively trying to stop people from voting. for herman cain to think that that individual is appropriate to have on his ticket, granted this gentlemen has predominantly focussed on the democratic party and the base is african-american, latino and youth voters and easterns in their
't you all dare go into iraq once we leave. as if they are going to listen to us waving our finger at them. >> well, here to help us navigate the mind of herman skain professor michael eric dyson, msnbc contributor, scholar and professor of sociology at georgetown university, as well as the author of debating race. sir, after hearing cain speak on foreign policy, do you have any idea what his policy constitutes? >> no, i guess it gives new meaning to having a dog in that fight or show of diplomacy. or maybe on the greyhound that was running behind him or the horse that was in front of him, a dark horse, to be sure. >> cut it, enough, enough. >> the reality is that this is all blatherring nonsense. it is rooted in temperamental disgust with obama, and get him at all costs. it is not rooted in plain thought rational reflection upon the forces that lie before us. and as you so poignantly pointed out. this seems to be more a recommendon station against george w. bush than against obama. now that they're withdrawing, you cannot win for losing. if you stay there too long, what are you do
front-runner status, why can't his dapper sales pitch win over those fickle tea partiers? joining us from washington, chris matthews, host of "hardball," historian and the man with which another cameo appearance. this time in the movie, the ides of march. and welcome, chris. >> i've saved that movie for my wife who is coming back tonight from overseas. i'll see it tomorrow night with her. >> i saw it on friday. you were majestic. >> thank you. >> what has happened to the candidates fared by the tea party? someone like rick perry, for instance, on occasions. it felt like he needed some kind of electroconvulsive therapy. >> the campaign is about jobs and he said i don't have a jobs plan. the dog ate my homework? how can you come to the party without the reason to be there? i mean, he's only running for president, it would seem to me is because he has a way to deal the w the 9.1 percent unemployment and he doesn't have one. why are you here? >> as you know, he said that mr. romney has been doing this for eight years. he's only had six weeks at the job. he needs a few more days to get it
nbc's lester holt is in perusia and joins us now. >> reporter: good evening. there is the scene in the courtroom about three blocks from where we are. the family got word about an hour ago and should be in court by 9:30. they are already there. they were seen walking hand in hand. they gathered up from a restaurant a few feet from where we are. there were hugs all-around. they walked down to the courthouse and the lawyers i think we are looking at with the prosecution side in that successes. we don't know when court will be called. we were told to begin at 9:30. what will happen is the court, two judges, six jurors had been deliberating since 10:45 our time. they will come back to deliver the verdict. it won't be guilty or not. it will be confirmed or reformed. confirmed would mean that the charges and the original conviction will stand. she will remain in prison serving a 26-year sentence. if they come back with reform or italian, reforma, there is a change to the case. it doesn't mean right away she will be freed. we will have to listen to what's following. that could mean we
everything. hang on. isn't that what is bringing protesters out on to the streets? isn't that what got us into this mess in the first place? perhaps mr. kantor should take a . the protester's indictment has a destructionive force economically and politically is completely right. it's done easy to forget just how courageous the story of our economic woes really is. nbc's mike viquiera is live at the white house. kantor and the president are having a rally over the protest, but what is it that makes mr. kantor so afraid of them? >> i had an opportunity to ask jay karn be the remark this morning at the value voter summit here in washington. he termed it hypocrisy on the reasons you would say they are employing the same language. it comes on the heels of yet another if not dizzyenal jobs report, treading water is the eh conme stuck at 9.1%. he was echoed by many officials. we don't believe there will be a double dip, but no question the economy flowed and job creation has slowed. they are quick to pivot to the jobs act. the president's proposal saying this is what is needed. the economists an
wagner and joining us from washington, analyst alex. eight out of ten voters are not sure who they should go with. the accidental nominee. >> it is entirely possible and not terrifying. the gop voters are undecided and herman cain is a flash in the pan, but had staying power. there was a desire to elect someone with fire. i call it the fruit loops theory. they have a choice between wheaties and fruit loops which is herman cain. they want someone with appeal and certainly herman with the first african-american nominee. >> even though it will give him diabetes. that disheveled smoker has a sinister past. these were behind it. >> he was? >> the smoking man behind every experience theory. he ran wisconsin branch of americans for prosperity when they were caught in the last recall election running a voter suppression scheme back in 1997. he was basically kicked out of the wisconsin politics for three years and fined $15,000 for violating election state law by coordinating independent expenditures with a contest for a state judge. >> he sounds perfectly qualified to run herman cain's campaign.
that sounds? >> it's very serious. >> the fact that you cannot say it and you are telling us we have to go to the association. >> that's the place to get the answer. >> cain always said his is a different kind of campaign. he concluded his national club remarks in a hymn to jesus. ♪ he looked beyond ♪ all my faults ♪ and saw >> he's got a good voice, but maybe not a nice story. with me now from washington, jonathan cape heart and goldie taylor, columnist. >> in the report, conversations with innuendo and personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature and descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual, but made women uncomfortable. it sounds difficult. what do you think television? >> i think -- look. herman cain would not be in the terrible mess he is in right now had he given the explanation he gave at the national press club today, october 31st. had he given that explanation on october 20th when politico said they reached out to get a response. yesterday jonathan martin goes up to herman cain when he comes out of cbs after doing face the nation and puts the ques
about it for a year. the idea that you stand here before us and talk about that you're strong on immigration is on its face the height of hypocrisy. >> down goes romney! but now the bleegd boy from belmont forced himself off the canvas and started to hit back at his main rival. >> i don't think i've ever hired an illegal in my life. so i'm afraid -- i'm looking forward to finding your facts on that. >> i'll tell what you the facts are. you had -- >> i'm speaking, i'm speaking, i'm speaking, i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rule works. i get 60 seconds. and then you get 30 seconds to respond. anderson? >> there he is, even calling in the ref. but it may have been too little too late. perry unleashed his red bull rage. though he still stumbled many times in the debate, appearing lost when he wasn't downright rude. >> nine cents or a new home or 9% on a new home americans who are sitting out there listening to this conversation tonight. >> whether it is bringing in illegal weapons or illegal -- you get to ask the questions. i get to answer them like i want to

in hindsight, it was the right decision. >> is it because the phrase bailout is so toxic that we can't use it? >> yes, in short answer, yes. the problem is that if you look at polling on the auto bailout, it is as unpopular as the bank bailout despite the fact they were different bailouts. one having to do with the real economy, one making creditors that owed money take a haircut, they lost some money which didn't happen in bank bailouts. i think it was a more equitable, productive bailout on the auto side. but it represents this deep betrayal. and that power, that power of the word bailout ends up making it difficult for them to make the case on what they did with the auto manufacturers. >> do you think the psychological phrase bailout -- >> what the bailouts represented at the deepest level was a fundamental betrayal of the american social contract and it was as if you all of a sudden woke up one morning and saw a society in which you were told that success is rewarded and failure is punished. >> if you work hard, you can do anything. >> is in fact a lie, and in fact when you made a bad inv
